to be a civil rights attorney and helped folks to 0 reunite with their families. but at the time the direction connect to the history of the city being a city of immigrants 35 percent of all the small businesses in san francisco was owned by an immigrant. our whole history this city's been built on good immigrants who found ideas and employed others. and today that story has not changed. i think that the businesses in succeed if we have good sound business policies but we make sure there's comprehensive immigration reform. because we've he learned over the years is that there are millions of people in the state of california and undocumented folks in san francisco that are not part of our official economy that are hiding. because of fear that will not participate in health prevention because of fear. because of that we have to have an immigration policy it is forward-looking and make sure there's a path to censorship[p. we're in a worldwide talent war. are we going to lose to other great cities or are we going to make sure we're getting the talent. i know the conversations are a bit sensitive

is really a civil right and it really effects our people that we serve in the independent resource center and i wanted to mention a couple of points. one is the prohibition against the people that receive ssa, from receiving the food stamps and really impacts the seniors and the people with disabilities, disproportionally, it is a major issue that really needs to be addressed and i hope is that through this process, san francisco can start to take steps to address this very important issue. i also want to say that many years ago, i have first hand experience with having the difficulty getting food, i was on ssi and so, this was many years ago but i have and i carry with me the memories of how difficult it was just to survive and to eat a proper meal i have a relative who is helpless in san francisco and he has moved to the mental health disability and when i was young he helped my mom take care of me and make sure that i was able to function throughout and growing up. and i am not able to help him now. but, what i am here to do today, is to ask, to remember, all of the people that are not
legislation by a very narrow margin. it didn't happen with civil rights or social security. there was consistently bipartisan ship in all the big major changes. what i'm fascinated with as a conservative. you had the president's top computer guy saying we're getting up to the velocity of the -- we had the president says you couldn't do in government what he did in the campaign, because all those federal regulations screw up everything, and you really can't get it done right. the question i have is if getting up to -- and if in fact the presidential campaign could be creative and remarkably effective, but the government can't be, isn't that sort of an argument against having the government try to run health care for 315 million people. for. >> for starters, let me address the first point. what has change indeed washington isn't a president's interest in reaching out to the other side. it is the opposing party's 100% intrance gens to working with the president's party. when you have the senate mitch mcconnell saying the number one job was stopping the second term, you get a s
on in vietnam, and it covered the civil rights development and the development in the american south, and some others have been in africa as well. and we all had military training and so as the conflict began, we had journalists who know a lot about the world and the military and had taken a very healthy, you know, view of the role of the journalists that has been challenging to government or challenging to authorities that fits under the traditional role as challenging authority to see what is really going on. and it was then and that environment in which the pictures and the news started coming out in vietnam and we discovered this, that the vietnamese that we met were very candid about what they were facing and many of them were our age were very candid about this as well about what they felt and what they saw and therefore we felt that we were getting a clear picture of what was emerging as the conflict grew in size. our vision differed markedly from the kennedy administration was hoping for and definitely from the johnson administration as well, president kennedy late in 1972 found the ed

are protesting against a lack of immigration policy. you have the civil rights agenda that's coming into fruition. you've got the supreme court now taking up an aspect of obama care, but also that touches on first amendment rights. so a whole lot of pieces of this puzzle that are going to -- i think can be problematic for both parties. but certainly for the republican party if they don't understand how to message themselves and put in place, i think, substantive policies that begin to address some of these issues. >> and you know, john, it's interesting. you get the sense that republicans do sort of see that. eric cantor this week talking about the fact that the gop needs to be able to answer a basic question, how do we address the fundamental problems that people have. with all of that menu of issues you heard michael steele mention, do republicans now run the risk of hubris, thinking obama care means we can go whole hog. we don't have to worry about really appearing uncompassionate when a lot of americans are changing their minds about things like minimum wage or food stamps or i might be one o

paying tribute to rosa parks. and the role she played in the civil rights movement in this country. but as you can imagine, many americans were surprised to hear racism was all over. the tweet sent off a firestorm online. maybe the backlash has something to do with the fact that this is still happening in america. >> set up near a mitt romney for president sign was a chair empty, except for two water melons, a rope tied into an apparent noose with a sign set up to look like a teleprompter that read, "go back to kenya." >> the sign in front of the georgia peach oyster bar says they don't support barack obama and the white house but uses the "n" word. >> the neighbor put a sign in his yard that uses the "n" word and claims it was directed at them. >> in an e-mail sent to an unknown number of officials, marlin davenport sent this photo, along with the phrase, now you know why no birth certificate. >> the rnc clarified its tweet saying previous tweet should have said today we remember rosa parks' bold stand and her role in fighting to end racism. joining me now in our rapid response pa
itself has caused harms, particularly in civil rights-type cases. but where there is a private party that is alleged to have forgot the government, -- alleged to have ripped off the government, that is the false claims act. host: a few issues that the false claims act. i -- that the false claims act prohibits. host: that according to the justice department. we are talking to colette matzzie about the false claims act, some of its history, and some of its applications today. matthew is up next on our line for democrats. thanks for calling "washington journal." caller: i would like to ask about the whistleblower law. can it be used for the tarp and banks that are too big to fail and can it be used for iraq, afghanistan, and syria, the eu building that we did, and the $12 trillion deficit caused? guest: well, in that context, taking the war context first, there is -- you know, there have been more cases, there will continue to be more cases. it is likely there are cases under investigation. ae typical were case involves private defense contractor who has submitted a claim to the united

actually scrapped. this constitution is more emphasis that it's civil and more emphasis on people's freedoms and rights but many also feel that there is more power to the military which could mean less democracy. >> when the u.s. secretary of state john kerry was in cairo it was recognizing human rights more than democratic and what is the reaction to the way the constitution has now been shaped? >> we have already heard from americans regarding a new floor that was put in place and condemned it and said it had serious flaws and officials said the same thing and they call to the government to amendment. other provisions here that may find problematic. the u.s. is walking a delicate balance and doesn't want to interfere too much but also need to put enough pressure because many of the people expect them to do so when things are dipped to human rights violations and especially when it comes to the military getting more power. one thing we have to make clear is this referendum will be put to a vote and only if it's approved by the people the other steps and parliamentary elections an

. i do not see it as a civil war. i see it as what happens when a party is out of power, and there isn't one unifying voice. as i ask you guys right now, who is the leader of the republican party today? >> boehner? >> is my friend. i will tell him that he has one person who thinks he is the leader. >> [inaudible] >> it isn't john boehner. he has no control over his caucus. even in the senate, you look at ted cruz. he was --it is so loose. i would say chris christie. >> if i went around this room and i asked everybody who their leader is, either we get no answer, or 40 different answers. when you do not have somebody that sets the standards, this happens. people start talking. you start sounding dysfunctional. that is happening to republicans. it hasn't happened to democrats because they have a president in the white house. there is no bigger bully pulpit than the presidency. frankly, he keeps them in line. when the progressive democrats want to go off the reservation, they have ways of keeping them in line. all sorts of things. i think that is one of the problems we are having. i thin
